it is quite strange if you didnt upload it. We can remove your username from it.

Are the admins capable of uploading subs on behalf of any user?

Literally, no. But admins can set any subtitle to (or unset from) any account, afterwards.

Still: do you mind this subtitle on your account?
If so, we can remove it.

I set the uploader to your account today. I don't get why you try to backchannel via someone else first, complaining that sub is not uploaded under your account, then when we take action in favor of the creators of the sub, which you're one of, you come here to complain that it's uploaded under your account. Make up your mind please.

I'm guessing someone uploaded your subtitle as "anonymous" and then someone reported it as yours (maybe you yourself), therefore an admin took action (explosiveskull) and put it in your name.

Below is a guide how you can make/send reports for admins to see and take action for situation like this one:

https://forum.opensubtitles.org/viewtop ... f=1&t=2595

Above guide can also be used to remove your own uploader name or to add your name as uploader to an anonymous sub.
If the subtitle has been uploaded by a registered user, then the name of that user will not be changed to yours without a very good reason. So the best thing to do is to upload your work here before others do.

In regards to the title of the thread, "Subtitle Uploaded Automatically".
Some users use programs to download and upload subtitles automatically, so someone can use a program to upload your subs here automatically, but not on your name.
